Pffft by lynbonn


The sound of a flame going out or the results of this unspectacular capture.

I was challenged to capture smoke. I am now aware that I am the owner of multiple smokeless soy candles. I also own a variety of things that do not create smoke when burned. After several attempts, with a variety of items and cameras, I submit my entry.

I am burnt out on this challenge!

Or perhaps I should call it "Minimalist Flame."
@frappa77 here is my response to your challenge. It is not impressive. But I did learn a lot about what doesn't work.

@lynbonn I know how it is to photograph smoke.... frustrating. I found that incense gave me the best results. I'm your challenge partner this week. I would like for you to take a portrait with Rim Lighting. You don't have to do it in studio, you could do it outdoors too with a low, setting sun. Let me know if you are ok with the challenge or I can change it for something else. Cheers,

oh dear, but what a fab shot. Insence sticks work- but my word they pong!!

@adi314 I thought of incense. I didn't find it it the first couple of stores. Thanks for the challenge.

I really like your minimalist flame, expecially on black... In my opinion you hit the challenge...

@frappa77 Thank you. I did not expect it to be hard to make smoke. Who knew?
